'TIS the season to be jolly, with Grafton's streets bright with Christmas decorations and light displays.

While a number of regular favourites have chosen not to participate in the light show this year including two homes on Turf St and one in Bailey Estate, Junction Hill, there are still some strong contenders for best lights.

Out at Bailey Estate, the community is still flying its Christmas flag with many houses taking part in simple and extravagant displays.

One house is blanketed with a nativity scene depicted on the front wall. It's impressive display can be seen from the entrance to the estate to leave marvelling at the hard work put by its owners.

Another house in Margaret Crescent. South Grafton has a magnificent display of lights timed to music and a little penguin on the roof.

On Armidale Rd, one resident has decked out a ute as Santa's Australian sleigh, complete with a trail of lights showing just how fast the jolly old guy has to go to deliver all the presents in time.
